MADRID, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Indra, a Spanish technology company, is supplying its Victrix assault rifle simulation system to the Spanish military for use in operational practice and training.

The six systems -- two for the army, two for the air force, one for the navy and one for the royal guard -- will bring the total number of systems delivered to the Spanish military to 34.

Indra said Wednesday the new systems were ordered last year in several contracts but did not disclose the contracts' details.

The Victrix simulators reproduce real scenarios and situations that soldiers would face in their operations, providing them with the opportunity to practice in a virtual environment using their standard-issue weapon fitted with a laser sight and blowback system.

The simulators' graphics and visual system, as well as being adapted to the specific training needs of the armed forces, have steadily been improved since its introduction in 2007, the company said.
